What's your favorite boutique speaker maker

Seeing a few discussions recently about Fritz made me curious about what other artisan speaker shops are out there. 

I'll cast my vote for Louis at Omega Speakers in CT. His high efficiency full range Alnico drivers, impeccable craftsmanship and very reasonable prices make a compelling option. I've had some very nice speakers over the years but these put a smile on my face like no others could. My search is over. 

No affiliation with him, here's a link to the ones he built for me the beginning of this year. 
Spatial is the best I've heard thus far in terms of value, outside of DIY. 

As a Swede I have to do a shout out for Lukase speakers. I heard them at a local show and the bass was overwhelming the small hotel room but the mid range was exceptional! 

The Oido Audio was also very good.

Search for the names in this text to read a bit more or go to their websites and use Google translate. Lukase says they deliver world wide if you have about $13k over.



It seems like a lifetime ago, but in the 1980’s it was John Fuselier, hands down one of the all time great speaker designer/builders. He is no longer with us, but for those of us who were fortunate enough to know him and own his speakers, it was simply a real treat!
